Well, PC is just able to scale up the graphics a lot, and with the ENB mod, it can look freakin spectacular! Just look at the pics I posted a page back...

Mafia 2 does, minus the technical problems, minus the vram limitations.

One thing about the GTAIV engine is it seems to have a lot of pop-in when you're moving very fast either in a car or especially a helicopter.

Mafia 2's engine has a smoother feel to it.

Mafia 2 is also on a smaller scale, both a benefit (polish and presentation) and a downside (not much to do outside of missions)
